      Hi Eloise,

      Thank you so much! This is exactly why we spend so much time and energy - you make it all worthwhile :) In the USA the historical society give us the right to call anything over 80 years old antique (unlike art which has to be 100 years old. But you don't walk on a Modigliani painting so chances are it will survive longer). My guess is that the USA has the same amount of good pieces if not more and I was not too sure about your last question so if you could elaborate that would be great!

      In the meantime - please feel free to visit our website at:

      Can I just say how much I love these rugs? I'm curious about what age range qualifies as 'antique', and whether more are available for sale in England than in the US. How can we assess the condition? Thanks for your help -
